    As much as I love everything about the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, I hate that they changed the location of the power button. I now end up lower my volume accidentally when trying to take screenies. Lol I've tried different ways of holding the phone and still can't get comfy. Am I alone in this?

    I adjusted to it years ago when I went from an Android with a top button to one with a side button. I couldn't imagine it anywhere but on the side at this point. Using my wife's 5C feels incredibly awkward to use the power button.

    How do you accidentally lower the volume when trying to take screenshots when you need to press the home and power buttons?

    It's funny I have an older iPod touch and I find myself always going to the side now to shut it off... You will get used to it quick

    I find it a little easier taking screenshots on the plus with my right hand and thumb and index finger.

    It's how I hold my phone when I'm taking screenies... lol I can't explain it but I do it that way so I don't have to touch any part of the corner of the screen when holding the phone.

    I like the new location. One phone as the big as the iPhone 6 that has the power button on the top is the HTC One M8. The power button is just awkward to push compared to other phones with the power button on the side.

    I've gotten used to it it's actually way better than on top.

    I have gotten used to the new location. Once in a while I still bump the volume button but it's not a big deal. Usually I hold it with one finger on the power button and the opposing finger over the mute switch.

    I do the same thing. I don't hit the volume as much as I use to.

    I can't stand it. I keep turning off my phone when taking pictures, and I keep hitting the volume keys when trying to turn it off

    I got used to it just like I got used to the size of the 6. Just takes time.

    The power button on the side seemed awkward at first but I got used to it.

    I find that I now try to turn off my iPhone 5 with a power button on the side instead of the top. I like it on the side.

    I'm with the OP on this. It's the only thing I don't like about the 6. With the sleep button being directly across from the volume buttons, I am constantly changing the volume.

    After a very short adjustment period, I now greatly prefer it on the side vs. on top.

    So, no, please don't move it back as that would be an inferior option.

    I hate it!
    When using the volume buttons to take vid/pics, I hit the s/w button, cause it's directly across from them.
    Also, when changing volume with the fone awake, I put it to sleep/lock and have to reunlock it.
    Of course, I can avoid all this if im paying attention and brace my hand/fingers so that I DONT do this, but that is precisely an indication it shouldn't be where they put it. Counter intuitive. Counter ergonomic.

    I haven't had any issues. I think it's something you just have to get used to.
